Germ Free Adolescent Curtain Raisers

Germ Free Adolescent Curtain Raisers

The project 

Working in response to Germ Free Adolescent, we will be working with three different young people’s groups; two in Chatham and one in Southwark. The groups will all use 'bravery' as a central starting point and will devise a fifteen minute curtain raiser, to be performed before the main show. Admission is free to ticket holders to that evening's performance of Germ Free Adolescent.
